At Full Pocket Farm
, our goal is to inspire and assist individuals living with disabilities in developing self-reliance, self-determination, and independence through meaningful life sharing, farm-based activities and creative expression.
We build life skills and practice vocational skills through therapeutic horticulture and art techniques and methods. Our approach is holistic in that we address the desires of individuals and the "real life" goals they want to achieve rather than just provide a place to spend the day.
Participant Farmers and Artists choose activities based on their preferences and goals. Options include growing plants, working with animals, cultivating crops, tending herb and flower gardens, developing farming skills, woodworking, pottery, creating arts and crafts and other marketable products in a nurturing environment with natural supports. Our activities change with the seasons.Full Pocket Farm
recognizes and values each person's daily contribution through revenue sharing and group decision making. Community interaction through the hosting of farm events, educating others about what we have learned, and selling what we produce and grow at markets is a major component of what we do at Full Pocket Farm.
Oh, and we believe in having FUN!
